Example Forecast 10/11/12 – 11/11/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday will see a Low of 961 millibars drop down from the South West of Iceland filling as it goes to 982 millibars. Having been in the South West of Scotland this Low will be pushed back to the North Coast of Scotland, due in part to a Novascotian Low of 964 millibars. An Azorean High of 1032 millibars will also help this push of the Scottish Low North and East into the Norwegian Sea. However there will be a slight spin off to all this, which will be a minor cold front right at the bottom of Saturday’s associated cold front in the near Atlantic - but this minor front will disappear quickly as it is pushed into Spain over the period. Sunday will see the Scottish Low having been pushed into the North Western Norwegian Sea, and the Novascotian Low will now be South of Greenland, and moving in West towards Northern Scotland (by Monday). The High pressure will still be in the Azores at 1032 millibars and pumping it’s associated fronts in our direction……. So all this will all mean you will have to read your respective areas in detail to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

Northern Scotland looks fun at times, Wales (South facing spots) and the South Coast (in the deepest South West) would be our choice. But some hunting in all these areas will be needed……

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A good practice weekend for you guys in the South West and Wales – be careful as the winds will be strong onshore, so as ever play safe.

It should be remembered

It should be remembered:

  • Regardless of the Weekend Outlook if there is surf, you should be out there to improve your surfing ability
  • so unless it’s flat, just ignore it(!) and go surfing.
  • The Weekend Outlook is aimed at those who are competent at paddling out in 6ft plus surf and looking for perfect conditions.
  • This is a SURF report, we care about the waves, as to whether it is sunny, rainy, snowy or hailing is incidental, and neither here nor there as far as we are concerned.
  • Also note that this is always written for midday, so there may be variances during the AM and PM.
  • Wave Heights are written in what you are actually taking in the face / duck diving, we are not into macho bs of measuring the wave from the back, this is the real thing, what you drop and ride = simple.
